I have been SO busy lately, most notably dealing with an internet outage at home that really knocked me off my game (three weeks without internet = a VERY tough time getting anything done!). My mobile data is almost used up for the month (I’ve never done that!!) and I’m thisclose to my maternity leave… But I had to leave a little love note for Michelle + Dave, since it’s been a year since their wedding (their anniversary was Sunday)!
They found me on Yelp and hired me sight-unseen to plan their wedding for them, long distance, from Chicago. From the minute we had our first phone call, I knew they were going to be the kind of clients planners always wish for; the kind that have their own mind about things (you’d be surprised how difficult it is to plan for someone who has no opinion!) but have lots of trust in the people they hire to do the best job they can. We had so much fun planning and creating their wedding together, and assembled a dream team of vendors. And THIS happened.
Yup. Pure bliss. Nothing makes a planner happier than to see her couple so happy that they don’t care who else sees them nuzzling.
This is another one of my favorite photos from their wedding:
Seriously? When the groom tears up seeing his bride coming down the aisle? This planner melts. I was behind the bride, way in the background, and didn’t see this happening. When I saw the photos later on, it took my breath away. It’s also a great reminder that the First Look (which they had) does not spoil the Coming Down the Aisle.
You can see more photos and videos on my blog:
I’m lucky enough to have been able to stay in their lives this year and I’m thrilled to say that things are going well for them – and I hope that next year we can celebrate their anniversary together, with our daughters!
